Discover the skydiving equivalent of learning to ride a bike with training wheels. In this method, you’ll be accompanied by certified instructors during freefall. These instructors act as “smart training wheels” ensuring your safety and guiding you towards mastering essential skills. Our AFF training includes a comprehensive ground course, typically lasting several hours. To bolster your knowledge, we ask students to review USPA Online Ground School. This offers valuable insights into equipment, canopy flight, landing procedures, emergency protocols, as well as exit and freefall techniques.
During your first AFF jump, you’ll exit the aircraft alongside two USPA AFF Instructors, enjoying 45 seconds of freefall instruction, typically at altitudes between 10,000 to 13,000 feet. Instructors will maintain a grip on your harness, providing vital in-air guidance and ensuring stability. You’ll open your own parachute at 4,500 feet, steering it safely to the landing area. Take your first step towards a solo skydive with AFF.
